Post Thanksgiving Leftovers

Man! My fridge is Stuffed and I swear I am too lol. I can remember years ago I could eat my Thanksgiving dinner and have a turkey sandwich in the evening. Not anymore! I literally fell into bed last night. Stuffed. Full. Done!

So now you know what we're having for supper tonight. But first we're going to the movies this afternoon to see Australia. See you later *urp*

Love After Love

Love After Love

The time will come

when, with elation

you will greet yourself arriving

at your own door, in your own mirror

and each will smile at the other's welcome,

and say, sit here. Eat.

You will love again the stranger who was your self.

Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart

to itself, to the stranger who has loved you

all your life, whom you ignored

for another, who knows you by heart.

Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,

the photographs, the desperate notes,

peel your own image from the mirror.

Sit. Feast on your life.

-Derek Walcott

Sharing with Friends..

Back in the 80's I wanted to learn to quilt. So I did! I don't have any time now to do this...but took these photo's the other day to show you that I Could! =)
Machine sewn but all hand quilted. I'm a purist hehe!

* Da Funk *

WW is running a challenge here. To name one of our favorite photographer's that we look to for inspiration when we have lost our way...

You know the feeling. The funk. The "I don't know what to even Take a photo of today" kind of funk. Especially now I find it a challenge to find pretty or interesting things. There is not really snow yet and the ground is quickly just turning a dull....brown....drab...blah! No flowers. No color. So what do we do? We look at others and look To others to help us find our groove again.
Well WW herself is someone who had personally helped me find my way in my photography life. Her photo's have inspired me and shown me how to center in on the things around us to find the beauty. Her blog is a joy to read. Her photo's make me want to do better! And I have to tell you; she has been a godsend to me when I've been stuck in a problem. She has helped me and conselled me to help me figure out what I was doing wrong. She took the TIME! For that I am very grateful and happy to have met her here; altho only as a net meeting. Plus she lives in the Blue Ridge Mountains where I hope to settle oneday. Lucky girl!

So when you're stuck and can't get inspired. When you can't even see the light around you; go to your fellow photo blogger's sites and cruise. You'll soon feel that artistic spark again!
